"I am a caring, empathetic psychologist who has considerable skills in helping people through crisis. I use a blend of exploration of past experience combined with practical, concrete advice and techniques for how to best grapple with current issues. My strengths are my intuitive understanding of people and their often deep-rooted issues, my ability to translate this understanding into a plan of action, and my gift for tailoring each treatment to each individual. I believe in being interactive and giving feedback and direction, but also believe in each individual's capacity to set their own goals and measures of success."

"I've been in clinical practice for over 30 years, treating adult, adolescents and children, helping them create more productive and healthier lives and relationships as well as establishing a stronger and more confident sense of themselves. The therapeutic process is an exploration of oneself, ones present and past relationships, traumas, and impressions that have created unhealthy patterns and conflicts which have influenced our capacity to live creative and satisfying lives. The therapeutic relationship is the vehicle through which these changes are made."

I approach every client through a strength-based lens to empower and help clients develop a more positive/hopeful perspective about the presenting issue causing distress at that time. I utilize a collaborative approach, working with clients to achieve set goals they wish to achieve and depending on those goals, so does the modality of therapy (individual, couple, parents, or family).
